Hi! Excuse me for jumping over the introduction area. To be quite honest I'm obsessed with my garden. It's always been my dream to have a nice little garden and since my husband and I just bought a home this year I started a raised one.
We built it 4 foot wide by 12 foot long. It's 8 inches deep on a level area. I filled it with A grade top soil that was sifted. I also added a few bags of compost.
So I planted...and it's been really crazy weather here in Kentucky. Raining like crazy...etc. I planted the following: Tomatoes, bell peppers, hot peppers, cabbage, onions, pickling cucumbers, and straight neck squash.
During the frosty bits I covered them with a hot blanket. They stayed very safe. All plants have been in the ground since 4/28/13.
So....I feel like my plants aren't growing like they should be... Especially the cucumbers! I'm devastated
My soil seems really clay like. Basically I mean its really wet and clumpy, especially with all the rain. It's moderate draining but has a but load of worms in it!
Should I pull up the plants (gently mind you cause they are all tiny still) and add in come peat moss and a butt load of compost?..Any advice really appreciated!
